2. Automatic Tape detection

The width and colour of the tape set in P-touch Cube label printer can be automatically detected and reflected on the screen. Tap on "Print Settings" and “Check media” for tape width and colour detection. (This explanation uses an AndroidTM device, but the same applies for iPhone® and iPad®.)

“Check media” function reflects the actual tape colour and width in the label printer.

5. How to reduce Tape margin

Due to the mechanical structure of a laminated label, there will be a margin at the beginning of each label after print. If two or more labels are printed, the tape margin can be reduced by changing the “Margin” to “Narrow” in “Print settings”. Follow by, select “Cut mark” and “Cut the last label” to on under “Cut Options” in “Print” for the second and subsequent labels print.

6. How to transfer a label created by Design&Print app to Design&Print 2 app

Transfer the label saved in "Created label" in Design&Print app to Design&Print 2 app. Select "Migrate to Design&Print 2” app from the menu located at the top right of the "Created labels" screen.

Photshot - Kitchen-32A

As Design&Print app and Design&Print 2 app have different design formats, the alignment of the label created by Design&Print app may change when transferred to Design&Print 2 app. Hence, adjusting the transferred labels in Design&Print 2 app may be required.

Sometimes, even after the migration is done, the labels transferred from Design&Print app to Design&Print 2 app may not appear.
